The 'lunge' skill is a low level warrior skill used to take an enemy
by surprise, more easily bypass defenses, and do additional damage. It
is similar to a thrust, but it involves taking a step forward or
leaning into the attack. While this skill has a much lower chance of
being parried or dodged that simply swinging your weapon, it does cost
movement and may leave your character off balance for a short period of
Similar to leap attack, it is less effective to lunge with whips or
flails than with solid weapons, such as an axe or hammer. It is
most effective with a weapon that comes to definite sharp point, such
as a piercing spear or a slicing sword. Unlike leap, it can be used
with equal effectiveness unarmed.
Like many power attacks, a lunge is most effective at penetrating the
armor of enemies that are dazed, confused, stunned, knocked down,
nauseated, demoralized or badly injured.
